The Autowatch 674Ri is a remote Immobiliser that comes with two remote controls.

Note: This qualifies as a NZSA 3 star without the usual shortcomings.

Most other remote immobilisers are simply alarms with the siren removed, whilst this may save most manufactures a couple of dollars to produce, it does have a disadvantage.

With most other systems the alarm can be triggered. Of course there is no siren to sound but the hazard lights will still flash. This will cause the inbuilt relays to click and help give away the immobilisers location. On top of this it does seem to have that pointless annoyance factor!

The 674Ri has the same security housing as most other Autowatch systems and is certainly the hardest stand alone remote immobiliser system to crack. The remote controls require a pin code to program so are not vulnerable to cloning. It has two inbuilt immobiliser relays along with the option of a 3rd external immobilisation cut.

    I lost my user manual, so I would like to know how to disarm an immobiliser using the ignition.

  2. Julian Julian says:

    You’ll need your override pin number to disarm the immobiliser.

    It is a five digit number and is entered by turning the ignition on/off.

    1: turn ign on – LED will be on constantly
    2: turn ign off – LED will start to flash
    Allow it to flash the the same number as the first digit of your pin code over ride then turn ignition on. (1-10 – a zero is 10 flashes)

    Repeat above for other numbers. If all numbers are entered correctly the the immobiliser will disarm.

    You can also download the PDF manual at the bottom of the review.

    How can I program a remote single button controller to my 674Ri immobilizer please? I have my code for the immobilizer. Just need the steps make them both work together.
    Regards Scott

    Hi Scott,

    When I sell a remote I provide the information needed to code it to the alarm, or better still actually program the remote myself. I suggest that you contact the person you purchased the remote from for assistance.

    Hi Scott here is the manual for the remote


  6. Julian Julian says:

    Hi Scott,

    The manual is simply the user manual for the 674Ri. If you read it you’ll see that it explains how pressing the button on the remote will arm or disarm the immobiliser. There is only one button so it’s easy to understand.

    the last owner of my vehicle poorly installed the system and the central locking isnt working so i need a copy of the wiring diagram.

    can anyone send me a copy please

  8. Julian Julian says:

    Hi Jayden,

    Wiring diagrams are only available to Autowatch dealerships and are not for public distribution. My advice would be to take your car to your nearest Autowatch dealer.

  10. Julian Julian says:

    Hi Don,

    I only sell systems with installation and don’t offer over seas sales.
